A few days ago the verdict in my UDRP, also known as a Domain Hijacking attempt, was given.
I won, or rather I get to keep the domain that someone tried to steal. They failed to prove the first of three points, that they had a valid trademark or right to the name. The panel didn’t even look at the other two points.
The panel did not rule that the complainant committed reverse domain hijacking, stating that while there could be a case for it, they chose to see the UDRP as “misguided” and not malicious.
The bottom line here is file a response if this happens to you. I pretty sure I could have simply responded with a one word response and still won the case as the complainant was “doomed from the start” (quote from the decision).
So this dude forgets to renew his domain, files a UDRP without any hope of winning, pays almost $2k to file instead of paying $2200 for the domain, loses and now will have to pay at least ONE BILLION DOLLARS to get his domain back.
I’ll write more about this on Tuesday, I’m falling asleep and tomorrow I’m fishing an “ironman” tournament, 2 stages, 20 hours of fishing in 24 hours. I also didn’t sleep at work last night, so this should be fun.
